Today will be short... it's all about friends. We had a little scare yesterday (well, it was probably mostly me being totally wigged out, but that's how I am!). I realized that it is never okay to take anything or anyone for granted. Especially the people who mean the most to you in your life. You just never know when something could happen to change what you think of as normal.
I realized that I'm horrible at calling and keeping in touch, partly because when I do talk to her, it's like picking up from a conversation we just had yesterday so it doesn't seem as long as it really is. I'm busy... she's busy. But life isn't good when I don't include the people who matter the most, on a regular basis! I got a wake-up call two days ago, and even though things are all okay, I never want to regret not giving my friends enough time! The thought of losing her made me cry all day long. My heart goes out to my good friend Olivia who knows exactly what I'm talking about. In fact, I am sending you a hug Olivia because I know you are still missing your best friend.
So today's challenge is to think of someone you really love spending time with and make a real phone call or a date to see them! Don't put it off. You'll never regret pushing something less important off for one more hour or one more afternoon to make time for the relationships that mean the most! And then, you can decide to keep in touch more often. Really, no one is here permanently on this earth, so it's important to use the time we have as wisely as possible. I am so thankful for my best friends!!!
